body contouring medical tourismBody contouring surgery is one of the most comprehensive cosmetic procedures that you can undergo via medical tourism.

As such, you have to make sure that you are dealing with a plastic surgeon you can trust, as well as a medical staff that you can entrust your life with.

Fortunately, you can find both of those in Miami, Florida – a place that offers high-quality plastic surgery at affordable prices.

If you want to know how Miami medical tourism can boost your body contouring surgery results, check out the following:

Florida is the home of plastic surgery in the USA.

Without a doubt, Florida is one of the states that people think about when it comes to plastic surgery.

Figures from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons revealed that there are 18 plastic surgeons for every 100,000 Miami residents aged 18 and above. You can just imagine the tight competition that brought about affordable plastic surgeries coupled with high-quality innovations.

And as for the Florida medical tourism sector, 2014 saw almost 400,000 patients from different parts of the globe visit the state for health care purposes. That brought in a revenue of $6 million that year in the healthcare industry alone.

The plastic surgery medical tourism sector is expected to continue rising in Florida in the years to come.

You’ll enjoy better quality care.

Miami may have the most affordable plastic surgery rates in the US, but that does not mean that you’ll get low quality plastic surgery.

On the contrary, the stiff competition made plastic surgeons strive to offer high-quality services while also giving patients a bang for their buck. With preventable medical errors being the third leading cause of death in the US according to the Washington Post*, you can rest assured that these things are minimized in Florida because Miami plastic surgeons have a reputation to maintain.

Miami plastic surgery clinics sport world-class facilities and advanced technology perfect for a procedure as delicate as body contouring surgery. Moreover, Miami’s healthcare systems are continuously innovating and expanding, paving the way for more high-quality plastic surgery choices in the years to come.

Medical tourism gives you access to little-known procedures.

Have you ever heard of the Mermaid Lift? Probably not, because this procedure is exclusive to Face + Body Cosmetic Surgery in Miami.

The Mermaid Lift is a one-of-a-kind procedure that aims to give you a more contoured lower body after massive weight loss. It is similar to body contouring, yet it emphasizes on accentuating the waistline to create a more feminine flare at the hips – similar to the feminine curves of the mythical mermaid.

Plastic surgeons in Miami health tourism are constantly reimagining cosmetic procedures to provide patients with a variety of options suitable to their needs and preferences.

Body contouring surgery waiting periods are short.

Since medical vacation providers are aware that you’re traveling to get their services, expect that you won’t be kept waiting for your turn.

Most plastic surgeons in Florida are willing to adjust based on your schedule so that you get as minimal downtime as possible. You may also schedule a phone or virtual consultation with your plastic surgeon before traveling to see right away if you are a good candidate for body contouring surgery.

After that, you can go ahead with your medical clearance so that once you’re cleared for surgery, you can fly to Florida just in time for your physical consultation and scheduled plastic surgery.

Plastic surgery clinic staff are friendly and accommodating.

Because Miami plastic surgery clinics cater to different ethnicities around the world, you don’t have to worry that you’ll get discriminated during your USA medical tourism. Hospital and clinic staff are respectful and courteous of every patient, regardless of age, sex, and race.

Impeccable customer service is not just exclusive to healthcare providers, though. Even medical vacation companies go out of their way to provide you with A+ services, such as giving you access to first-class accommodations and roundtrip airport transfers. They also offer rehabilitation services for body contouring patients, as they often need to recover for an extended period.

You enjoy a longer hospital stay for less.

Since most health tourism patients stay in a hospital or recovery center for quite some time, these establishments created economical packages that cater to the needs of these patients.

You’ll often find that these hospitals don’t charge hefty room fees and allow you to stay until you are fit to fly home. Plus, these hospitals sport latest technologies and top-notch facilities, giving them the means to accommodate any plastic surgery.

As for minor cosmetic procedures like dermal fillers and Botox injections, you can do them on an outpatient basis and stay in a hotel that serves medical tourism patients.

You get to have personalized service.

The easiest way to carry out your Miami medical tourism plans is to hire a medical tourism company in Florida. Doing so can make your plastic surgery trip a hassle-free affair.

You can have everything taken care of, as they arrange your flights, accommodation, and surgery schedule according to your preferences. They also customize their services based on what you need, and they are always ready to lend a helping hand any time a problem arises.

A reputable medical tourism agency also comes in handy when it comes to looking for hospitals and plastic surgeons who do body contouring surgery, as the company often has a list of establishments that meet their healthcare standards.

Medical tourism plastic surgeries cost less.

Perhaps one of the biggest reasons patients prefer plastic surgery medical tourism is the cost.

While there are other cities in the world offering cheaper plastic surgery, Miami stands out from the crowd because it hits the perfect spot between quality and affordability.

Plus, some people are just not willing to travel to Thailand or South Korea, preferring to get body contouring surgery in the US instead. After all, staying in the US can help you save on passport, visa procurement fees, and airfare – all adding up to the total cost of plastic surgery medical tourism.

A medical vacation is an adventure in itself.

If you’re going to another location to get plastic surgery, you might as well make it a vacation.

After all, Miami boasts of lovely beaches, tropical parks, oceanfront locations, and urban hubs that every tourist will enjoy.

While you’re recovering from your body contouring surgery, you can explore the city’s local vibe and world-famous beaches. You will also have no shortage of healthy dining options and picturesque dining spots while you’re recuperating.

Since you are probably going to need new clothes after plastic surgery, you can shop around Miami’s outlet malls and luxury designer boutiques and look for clothes that fit your new contour.

Face+Body plastic surgeons are double board-certified.

A board certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery means that a plastic surgeon had at least five years of surgical training in general surgery and specialized plastic surgery.

It also serves as proof of their expertise when it comes to making aesthetic judgments – something that can only be learned through experience and constant practice.

Board-certified plastic surgeons are also adept at handling emergencies. They often have hospital privileges to perform extensive body contouring surgeries, lessening the risk of complications and medical emergencies.
